after the clinton administration and congress last raised the gas tax. that was 21 years ago when gasoline was $1.08 and i wonder if barack had even met michelle and there it remained for 21 years. due to inflation and fuel economy increases, the average cost per mile that the american motorist pays to the federal government for transportation has been cut in half. i went on the budget and the ways and means committee the last eight years in order to deal with this issue, but frankly i'm tired of waiting. i introduced a gas tax increase phased in over three years to fully fund a six-year re-authorization. was pleased to be joined by friends during my bill introduction by the u.s. chamber, the afl-cio, truckers and a.a.a., transit, local government, environmentalists, road builders. i find it hard to say people will say this will be a heavy lift because there's little support for it. when chairman camp offered $150 billion last week in his tax reform bill, what president obama suggested $300 billion, where was their broad base of support? maybe that's why both proposals were called

hillary clinton as she runs isn't going to be on defense i'm looking forward to a fairly robust presidential race itch i hope will reallocate the need for that international affairs. we know there are competing elements in both political parties but don't want to hear that and they do want to do nationbuilding at home and i understand that argument that i think we need a rebalancing on that one as well. in summary, president obama has a better foreign-policy than he himself acknowledges, and he should actually based the ukraine policy on the need to prove that america is re- engaging because the state skier i think are simply too high, and the risk of making the wrong decision to hire to use ukraine as a litmus test for leadership to fix serious policy and then he made ukraine on its own merits. point number two and this is intended as an attempt to get at the worldview of vladimir putin and it's been haunting me the last couple days so i'm going to burden you with my view what is the analogy for putin? in american foreign policy to what he's doing now and by the way, don't worr

"he has protected civilians in libya and qadhafi is gone." so, obviously, we have not decimated al qaeda. al qaeda is not on the run. in fact, al qaeda is increasing everywhere across the middle east and north africa. and anybody who believes that when the black flags of al qaeda are flying over the city of
